70 best self worth quotes

Self worth is defined as “the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person”; “a sense of one’s own value as a human being”. Since I published my book ‘Self Worth’, I get asked often ‘what is self worth’ or I’m being aksed to share a quote on self worth. Below, I selected 70 best quotes on self worth, from me and other respected authors:


Self worth is the value that we place on ourselves. It’s really ironic that we can spend years, even decades of our life, seeking for the validation from other people, when the only thing we need to feel worthy is to perceive our own value.” – Danijela Jokic Vaislay

Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.”C. JoyBell C.


“If you had to choose only two qualities to get you through times of change, the first should be a sense of self-worth and the second a sense of humor.” – Jennifer James

We are the ones who determine our own value (worth), just like the salesman puts the price on the objects he’s selling. Luxury brands, such as CHANEL, GUCCI, and PRADA, are doing a great job in increasing the perceived value of their products in our eyes, so that we perceive them to be much more worthy than the actual cost of the material that their artefacts are made of. On the other hand, we can devalue ourselves, ‘sell ourselves cheep’, or even as a counterfeit.” – Danijela Jokic Vaislay

Seeking to find our worth in other people’s eyes is a game lost before it’s even started. People can only see us through their own lens and their opinion of us is a reflection of themselves. Noticing painful dynamics is a path to finding the wounded inner child who needed love, confirmation and approval, but was so often misunderstood and unseen. We all have the medicine – to reclaim our wounded inner child and set our worth for ourselves. Our environment will always react to our own beliefs and is a mirror to how we, so often subconsciously, perceive ourselves”Petra Poje
